We want to carry out Alternatives' GOALS.
1) "Heightening awareness in an increasingly larger audience about the implications of consumerism and commercialization in the celebrations of Christmas and other holidays."

2) "Diverting persons and institutions from over-consumption to a more just distribution and stewardship of funds and other resources."

3) "Providing a bridge between those concerned about peace, justice and sustainability of creation whether within religious institutions or outside them."
